*LOS ANGELES, California (CNN)* --
Singer Natalie Cole underwent kidney transplant surgery at a Los 
Angeles, California, hospital Tuesday, according to a statement from her 
publicist.

Cole, daughter of legendary singer-actor Nat King Cole, has been 
receiving kidney dialysis three times a week since September, the 
statement said.

Cole was "resting comfortably" at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los 
Angeles, it said.  "Ms. Cole's physicians have advised her to postpone 
her summer tour dates as she recuperates for the next three to four 
months," it said.

Rescheduled concert dates will be announced soon for Cole's tour, which 
is in support of her current double-Grammy-winning CD, "Still 
Unforgettable."
